introduce: this project will show the gradual process of decaying of faces after people death. users stand on the spot scanned by camera taken a picture, then this picture will appear on a screen in front of them, the picture, their face, will show and predict vividly the rotten appearance of his face when he died, along with horrible and scary music, and followed by some strange scenes, such as a long dark corridor with the end of luminosity, seeing soft and comfortable light or figures of death people, building a frightened but mysterious atmosphere. what i want to make this project is it can make users can get closely access to the reality of death visually and acoustically.
what ideas are you exploring?
i want to exploring of importance of facing up to death
and why (rationale)?
why: generally, death is a mysterious thing and also is a some kind of taboo to talk about in social situation, people always tend to get around this issue because they dislike death and intend to hide uncertain and fear. But on the contrary, death is the first place thing in lifewait us to deal with. also actually from perspective of religion and philosophy, to deal with and face up to the death is to talk about and some kind of i want my project could interprete visually and acoustically the
bacause it is strange that we totally didn’t know how we came to this world and why, where we come from and where we will go after completing this life, especially, what the real world look like. metaphorically, it is just like a big cloth covering our eyes, we cannot see the real world, and we cannot see everything that we indeed want to see. even severely, most of us are misled by a simple cloth and even think what we have saw (the color or texture of this cloth) is the true world. let me to expand the meaning of it. the color and the texture, or something others in this cloth is just like the money, the power, the lovers or family or even our name, body, belongings and everything else around us, making us feel that we are existing. but the world is the very limited cloth world, we can see it is a false world. because,actually when you are died, the money and power cannot go with you, either the person you loved and even once promised to you that he or she will company you forever. more horribly, seems like your body, your names and all the things you have ever know and thought which is you is just like a guest. because you name and body, where they save is only your dead body, the point is when you are died, the body is not belonging to you anymore, all the things you have ever very familiar with is nothing with you .they become a totally strangers. so in this way, the things you think is you, i mean your name, your body and others, is not real you, its a false you. and the things you think which is real world, still not the real appearance of world, it is a false world. because if you know what on earth you are and what the real world is, you will know how you came to this world and why, and where we come from.
what inspired you?
so this is the thing inspire me to get an idea. i want people not be cheated by the false phonomenon.
Conceptual challenges? maybe i have no conceptual challenges myself. but the problem i encounter with is i dont know how to talk them with you and to make you understand correctly. something is easy to feeling, to thinking, but possibly have some problems in convey concept in communication
Practical (resource/skill-based) challenges? to make this project, i need to learn some programming to make a gradual decoy face, which is a little hard for me. i think i need to use faceosc, we learn it this monday. then to gather the data to processing and edit it.
elevant my communication skills and enhance my technical skills, i need to hardworking with it.
i also need some installations, a screen can show your face, the sound equipment, the scan machine. i dont know where i can find them.
Who is your audience/readership?
ideally, i want my project to talk with all the other people. but im not sure, probably not everyone like to think about this. so maybe people who have ever confused and puzzled about this sort of issue as me would be better.
Whose work does your proposed project relate to?
actually, i didn’t see and know some else’ work relevant with me. but i think maybe the works from artists who have engaged in some psychological and philosophical issue or some unknown world its ok.
